A Quality of Service Architecture for Resource Provisioning and Rate Control in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
Prioritized flow control is a type of QoS provisioning in which each class is provided a different QoS by assigning priority to one class over another in terms of allocating resources. It is an effective means to provide service differentiation to different class of service in mobile ad hoc networks. So the objective is to achieve a desired level of service to high-priority flows so that the wireless medium is completely utilized using adaptive rate control. In this paper, the authors propose to design QoS architecture for Bandwidth Management and Rate Control in MANET.
